Our patient, Stacey Falls, leaves a lasting impression because post-op day one after her tube shunt removal and Trabectome, she is now pain free and gushing with thanks and gratitude to the VEC Team. It was very touching to hear all of the wonderful things she had to say about everyone she came in contact with. She praised the Suffolk team from the front desk staff with warm welcomes, to all the techs that diligently did their job and the team of doctors including Drs. Okeke, Chang and Yeu who worked as a team to come up with the best solution to her very debilitating eye condition. She said she’s been to hospitals and eye doctors all over the world because her husband is in the military and VEC had been the best. She is ever so grateful she found VEC and feels that her prayers were answered.Stacey Falls, Glaucoma Patient
Within the last 12 months my vision took a rapid decline. I assumed, along with my husband and some co-workers, that reading glasses would be in my cart during my next trip to Target or Walgreens. Not long after, I noticed a severe decline in my distance vision. The sun’s glare made driving difficult at times and the flags at the golf course was so distant, I assumed there were no flags at all! The declining state of my distance and computer vision was unsettling. I kept this to myself for a while as I was in a state of denial and disbelief. The deterioration of my vision was rapidly advancing so it was difficult to gauge.
I knew an appointment with an optometrist was at the top of the To Do list. On Monday morning, I scheduled a full eye exam and learned I had cataracts. After speaking with ophthalmologists at a few local eye centers, I chose to go with Dr. Yeu at Virginia Eye Consultants. The entire staff was well-organized, SO friendly, and accommodating. When you first enter VEC, its vast sized waiting area filled with patients can be a bit intimidating. But upon signing in you’re greeted with a warm smile, cookies, and coffee!
Dr. Yeu would not let me move forward with a multi-focal lens until we cleared up, or at least tried to clear up, my moderate dry eye. Dr. Yeu was very straight forward, honest, and transparent during the entire exam, and as such - she explained that the multi-focal lens would not be nearly as effective as it should if my dry eye remained moderate. Luckily, my dry eye cleared up with her recommended drops and nutritional supplement. We decided to go with a multi-focal lens in my dominant right eye and a mono lens in my left.
Last week was the big day, my first of two cataract surgeries with Dr. Yeu and team. Both, Dr. Yeu and her team, were amazing. During the laser surgery, Dr. Yeu talked me through it with encouraging comments to let me know how well the procedure was going. Then she counted down the last seconds of the process and exclaimed, “Congrats. About 75% of the surgery is complete and the astigmatism is cleared up!” The following day, my post operation appointment showed 20/25 vision! Yesterday was my one week post op meeting and my right eye vision was 20/20 for both my near and far vision! I’m looking forward to next week when my left eye is fixed.
Big thanks to the team at Virginia Eye Consultants and Dr. Yeu!Dara K., Cateract Surgery Patient
